I was expecting some sort of negativity as I have taken the story out of its natural habitat, the comic, and written it as a series of short stories. Why did I do this?
The answer has a lot of aspects to it but the main reasons are A) I really didn't feel ready to write a novel and B) I had (I think) a really good way of getting a readership. Was I right? Time will tell...
The reason it is short is because it is a short story, written as a series. I like it that way but it will be changing. I am currently writing the Blue Jackets novel but don't hold your breath - I'm not a fast writer...
I have three projects on the go at the moment. The novel I just mentioned, a (hate the word) biography and the third project which I will be launching shortly - expect a major announcement shortly.
On a more important note...
Today I went to the physiotherapist. She agrees that my recent relapse, coupled with the removal of my toe nail has had a major effect on my already limited mobility. Because I am three years (almost) into dealing with my MS she is more inclined to listen to what I say than some of my previous physios. A new exercise plan has been implemented, it is much reduced and is designed to attack one bunch of muscles. So now I'll be working on my Quads in an attempt to lend support to my knee.
I have also heard that Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis too. My condolences go out to him and his family. He seems to be attacking life with MS from a very positive place and as I have realised, this is the only way to go. Keep the mental attitude correct and then deal with the physical as it comes... Good luck, man!
